in the neighborhood are seeing. what's so remarkable is that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, he has been dead since this morning, so all this is the result of one man potentially on the loose. so that one man, dzhokhar tsarnaev, has caused this kind of havoc, if not a lot more strong words. you mentioned kerry sanders. he's elsewhere in watertown. katie was describing you being on the ground. we've seen you in all sorts of positions. just really an exhausting time for you because you're keeping right up with the emotions of the police, that community. it's been like a wild roller coaster there. >> alex, i think i am probably a reflection of what a lot of people in their homes have felt like here, being trapped, waiting for some sort of information and wondering. glued to their televisions. just trying to find out what is going on. you're in your home. it's dark out. you hear a commotion. you look outside and there you see police officers in s.w.a.t. gear. it's been quite an ordeal for folks here. as you pointed out at times we have found ourselves up close and personal to some very tension mo
loose. dzhokhar tsarnaev. we know the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev is dead. we know two people in custody, not necessary related, that live in the apartment that these two brothers live in. willie, you have been covering things overnight. give us the tick talk through that convenience store robbery to where we are right now. >> as pete williams is pointing out for us this morning this came out because of the actions of these two alleged terrorists. they decided to rob a 7-eleven at 10:20 in cambridge. they went and murdered a police officer sitting in his vehicle at m.i.t. that led to a carjacking. they took a black mercedes suv. they held at gunpoint the driver of that car for 30 minutes before releasing the driver unharmed. at that point, there's a chase and authorities come into the town of watertown, as mike barnicle described it for us this morning. a bedroom community of 32,000 people and there was a shootout in the streets of watertown. suspect number one. the one we have come to known in the black hat. was on the ground. authorities found him with an ied. improvised exp
-olds, tamerlan. one was born in curd stan and the other in russia. they have been living here in this country for about a decade. in watertown, nbc news justice correspondent and atf agent james cavanaugh and analyst roger cressy. live in watertown, we were listening together as kerry sanders was moved further and further back. what are you seeing? >> he is a few blocks away from here, but we are not hearing anything that he is hearing. it's quiet in this part of watertown. the helicopter that had been circling for the past few hours is no longer here. we have seen tactical units leave and others come back in. we haven't seen anything like kerry has been seeing a few blocks away from where we are standing. we don't want to give away too much because the police asked that we don't give out tactical information, but we are going on hour ten of a lockdown. people are not outside. maybe all of four or five residents come around to the area. that's very unusual whenever there is a media staging area people ask what is going on. we have seen none of that. people are heeding the warnings to stay ins
chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've learned about how all this went down? >> well, it's an absolutely fascinating story, alex. as you know, yesterday the entire city of boston, a town of 625,000 people, as well as the surrounding metropolitan area of about 2 million, was put on lockdown. people were told not to go outside of their homes. around abou
's -- and the brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had the ploes sifs strapped to him. no indication that dzhokhar did. and he obviously tried to make an escape. so what does that tell you about his own state of mind and you know the idea some of these guys want to be a martyr to a case an if there is a cause and we don't know. some of them want to live. >> it tells me there's just what you said. there's a lot of people saying i'm willing to die but they don't necessariry want to die. this guy could have died. he could have leaned out of the boat and cranked out a couple more rounds and they would have put him down. but he chose not to. tactically they did everything they could to get him out of there alive. he could have committed that suicide. as long as we see the vid act of wanting to sur vief we have something to play with. we can dance with the devil to get information to save lives as long as we know this guy will not see the light of day outside of a prison again. >> where do you suppose they will take this line of questioning, clint? well, is that to me, chris? yeah. >> yeah. the things we're trying
. the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was 26. nbc news learned he spent six months last year outside of the country. authorities are still piecing together where he went and what he did during that time. there are many questions tonight. joining me to help answer them is nbc investigative correspondent michael isikoff and former director of the national counterterrorism center michael leiter. and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. let me start with michael leiter. the other day, it seems like a year ago, two, three days ago you, had this sense, professional instinct, if you will, that this killer, one of the two bombers, was a local. tell me how you came to that assessment. >> well, chris, my take -- >> he is a local. >> he is a local and he's got deep ties to boston. and my take was there's no doubt that the boston marathon is a worldwide known event, but unlike many of the targets, a lot of people really have used in the past, there's something specific to boston about it. there's something specific about the finish line and about patriots day and my take from that was that this
, but the older brother, dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, has been living in america since 2007. tell me your thoughts on what happened here. he's living in america since '07 and at some point, turns and decides he wants to kill americans. what would be your take in terms of the psychology and what these two are thinking or were thinking? >> well, we don't know, but we're about to find out. some say there might be a hybrid here, like major nidal hasan was radicalized via the internet, yet there was another soldier at ft. hood, an enlisted man, who built two explosive devices just like the ones we see used in boston because he had access to the same internet magazines that these guys did, but at ft. hood, he used it to kill soldiers for his own personal reasons, not necessarily anything that had to do with religion or politics. in this particular case, because perhaps the older brother was radicalized, had influence on the younger brother, who's the fugitive right now, we may find this is something like a timothy mcveigh. in essence, the target was not so specific, but the target was located because he
